Bananas in Africa: Diversity, uses and prospects for improvement



Bananas in Africa: Diversity, uses and prospects for improvement



Crop genetic resources of Africa Volume II Proceedings of an international symposium, Ibadan, Nigeria, 17-20 October 1988: 151-159, xix



African bananas of which the fruit is consumed belong to the genus Musa and have 3 categories of usage: plantain; highland beer and cooking bananas; and dessert bananas. A major constraint to production is infection by Mycosphaerella fijiensis and the only feasible method of control is by distribution of disease resistant germplasm.
